On this new day I want to share a message that shows us the reasons why we often do not reach the promises of God, product of the hardening of our hearts to His word.
Who wrote Hebrews 4: 7 said about the Lord:
Again one day ends: today, after so much time, through David, as it was said: If you hear my voice, do not harden your heart.
Why did many Hebrews who left Egypt led by Moses not enter the promised land? Very simple, because having heard the voice of God, they provoked him to be angry and did not believe the voice of God, but hardened his heart, which resulted in them dying in the desert and not seeing or enjoying the land that God had promised. .
The same people who saw the signs and wonders that God had done with them in Egypt, were the same people that God delivered from the hands of Pharaoh in front of the Red Sea, which God with his power opened in two for people to pass safely . crossing the sea to the desert. These same people, that when they lacked food and water in the desert, God sustained them with manna and water that came out of the rock in that huge desert. This people who saw all the wonders that God had done with them, it turned out that this people of Israel hardened their hearts to the voice of God, who swore he would not let them into the promised land, because they were disobedient. And all who disobeyed were those who died in the desert and could not enter to enjoy what God had promised them.
I believe that this same word that applied to the people of Israel in the desert also applies to the people of God (Church) today.
Friend reader, while reading the Word of God, while listening to your voice, do not harden your heart. Believe in the present and start today to refuse to live with fear and regret. Let the Word of God be the point of contact to let out faith and fulfill God's promise to take care of your past and future.
In Hebrews 4: 2, we are told that the Israelites heard this message, but it did not benefit them by not merging it with faith.
I have learned that we can hear more and more about the promises of God, but there comes a time when we must let faith float and say: "That is mine, and I will not live another day without doing my best to enjoy it." ".
